Roof and Ladder Falls
Roof and ladder falls are one of the most common on-the-job injuries in the Delaware construction industry and many other fields. These types of injuries can be devastating, easily leading to serious head injuries, spinal cord trauma, fractures and even fatalities. Some people find that they are unable to return to work after a roof or ladder fall, while others miss weeks or even months of income and work opportunities.

When to Call a Delaware Roof Fall Injury Attorney
If you suffered a work accident in which you have fallen from a ladder, roof or other high height, it's important to contact a Delaware roof fall lawyer immediately. Even if you think workers’ compensation will cover you, and your employer promises compensation or assistance, contact an attorney to find out what your options are and how much the case may be worth.
Don’t delay in making that call. The sooner you contact a caring attorney, the sooner you can start to protect the benefits that may help you pay for medical care and other bills.
What a Roofing Accident Attorney Can Do for You in Delaware
If you have been injured in a workplace accident in Delaware, you may think that you are covered by workers’ compensation. Unfortunately, not all workers’ compensation claims are honored — even if they are legitimate.
In some cases, employers don't submit the correct paperwork or haven't paid for the workers’ compensation insurance required by Delaware law. In other cases, insurers claim that a serious injury is not as serious as represented or the injury was not work related. Sometimes, employers try to assert a worker was a contractor and not an employee, and so not eligible for coverage.
In all these cases, a Delaware ladder fall injury lawyer can represent you and offer advice. If your workers’ compensation claim is denied, delayed, or you have trouble getting fair compensation for your injuries, a ladder fall injury lawyer in Newark or your Delaware community can stand by you. An attorney can negotiate with carriers and employers, ensure your employer didn’t break any laws and actively fight if your claim is denied or your compensation benefits are delayed.
